Get a Toyota. Also..research used car ratings before you buy. An online subscription to Consumer reports is worth it.

A few years ago I bought a 92 Camry wagon with 140,00 miles on it for $3000. Traded it in with

260, 000 miles on it. I spent $220 on repairs the entire time I had it. Should have kept it longer. Bought it based on Consumer reports ratings. Would not make a major purchase without them.

Thanks for all the feedback. I'll save this and use it for a future time.

My car spontaneously started working again. The little good fortune elves must have paid it a visit or something because it's running fine now. We had it towed to the shop because it started making an awful racket and it was shaking like crazy it also wouldn't go when shifted into gear. The shop could not duplicate the problem. They ran diagnostics on it and no fault codes came up they said the only thing was the fuel pressure was about 10 lbs low but that didn't concern them much because if the fuel pump were going bad, it would be reading lower than that for sure. They recommended just driving it around town and if it happened again to give them a call.

So, I'm just going to drive the bastard till the wheels fall off.
